Title:
Life preserver jacket with attached grip handles
Kind Code:
A1


Abstract:
A person wearing the life preserver jacket with attached grip handles can drive a jet ski floatation tube or any situation with a partner behind him. The partner now has a handle on each of the drivers' jacket sides to safely hold onto him. Without the handles, there is nothing to hold onto. An adult or child can be rescued or retrieved with ease when wearing the life preserver with attached handles, because a rescuer can grab a handle on the wearers' life preserver and pull them to safety, or tie or clip a safety line to their handles.
